Konsumtion, det urbana livet och stadens morfologi: Transaktioner ur ett tidrumsligt perspektiv
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Human Geography.
2005 (Swedish)Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

Urban consumption is both created and recreated by everyday urban life and the morphological structure of the city. Consumption is here conceived of as a drama, where a distinction can be made between consumption as a societal phenomenon and consumption as an everyday life project, which unfolds upon the city stage. The thesis explores this mutually interdependent relationship by focusing on transactions of commodity goods and services in time and space. The analysis is conducted through a theoretical discussion of the relationships between consumers, products and producers, in which the role of material and immaterial restrictions and institutions are emphasized. Hägerstrand’s time-geography and Lefebvre’s theory of socio-spatial dialects are in the thesis used for the development of a time-space perspective in which moments of transactions are abstracted from transaction situations. Different time-spatial commodity transactions are then problematized and illustrated within their time-space context with concrete examples from Stockholm City.
